Having stumbled across Lunch Money recently, we also chanced upon this 3-track project from Caravela. Released by None More Records who also dropped Lunch Money’s debut single this enticing quintet is made up of members from Portugal, South America, Australia and the UK.
Their music is an exploration of the communal traditional and spiritual music of Lusophone countries like Brazil and Cape Verde approached with a contemporary groove and feel.
Drawing on influences like Baden Powell, Mayra Andrade and Lionel Loueke, the band’s exploration of Afro-Brazilian music on their debut EP is a joy from beginning to end.
There’s little else to say, other than get ready to be taken on a highly intoxicating improvised Afro-Brazilian journey.
